When the Babe called it quits after hitting 714 home runs, only two other players had even reached the 300 mark. Name them.

Gehrig is correct, but Foxx was still just below the mark (he'd get there very soon)...

Rogers Hornsby and Lou Gehrig

Jimmie Foxx must have been really close. I'm going to have to go and count.<br><br><span class=gensmall>Accepted as answer by Arlo on 04 Feb 2003 10:01 EST.</span>

Hornsby is correct! Funny that we don't really consider him a power hitter today...

And yeah, Foxx was very close, and passed the milestone that same season.

Nice one! ;-D

That was a good one. Hornsby was even closer than Foxx as he ended his career with 301. However, it took him something like three years to go from 300 to 301. Strange.

I believe Hornsby didn't play much in his final seasons - he was primarily a manager by then.
